Supporting the “Open Door” Model Centre for Education and Rehabilitation

Don’t you know who I am? I’m just like you.

Cerebral Palsy Greece/Open Door is consistently providing services to children and adults suffering from cerebral palsy and assistance to their families. At the same time, it provides training and retraining of qualified personnel, encourages scientific research and conducts advocacy actions in connection with the legislation on measures concerning people with disabilities. To date, it has supported over 4,000 families, while every day, more than 240 people of all ages attend the programmes offered by the “Open Door” Model Centre for Education and Rehabilitation.

Bodossaki Foundation recognises its important work and the value of its holistic approach to providing services to people with cerebral palsy. Wishing to support this work, it assists for yet another the “Open Door” Model Centre for Education in Argyroupoli, by covering the cost of purchasing the necessary equipment for the Centre’s therapeutic and educational programmes.

In their own words:

“On behalf of the Speech Therapy Department, we would like to thank you for the valuable contribution of Bodossaki Foundation, which purchased the necessary modern electronic equipment for alternative communication. This equipment enables us to educate even more children and adults with speech difficulties, so that they can express their wishes, thoughts and feelings.”

Irini Psalida, Head of Speech Therapy Department

“The staff, children and adolescents of the “Open Door” educational teams would like to thank Bodossaki Foundation for its donation of three laptops. With these, our educational process has acquired even greater interest and variety, as we are given the opportunity to use them daily for playing games, watching videos, and other activities.”

Christa Beeke, Head of Education Teams
